If it's one thing New Look needs a gold star for, it's for the shoes. They always have such a cracking selection at really reasonable prices and it looks like next season will be no different. The black and gold sandals are calling my name - going to have to try and hunt them down when the time comes! I'm loving all the boot cut outs. They're perfect to jazz up a simple casual outfit.
Next season seems to be a never-ending stream of luxe fabrics, warm rich tones and ankle straps. By the looks of the weather lately it seems like we won't have too long to wait until we can wear these beauties! I wish they'd hurry up and pop up in the store!
What do you like best?

Light cropped denim jacket: Primark
Grey boyfriend fit t-shirt: Asos
Floral elasticated bottomed trousers: c/o George at Asda
Silver bow flat sandals: Random local boutique
White gem statement necklace: c/o New Look
I mentioned a little while ago that these trousers from the George at Asda press event were by far my favourite item of the day and they very kindly offered to send a pair for me to style up. Lucky girl eh? I've gone for a casual vibe first but they can easily be dressed up for a night at the pub with a blazer and heels with a top picked out from a colour in the flowers. Reason number 46893642 why I love patterned trousers so much! These are literally the comfiest things I own - they're so soft on your skin. We all know scratchy materials are a no go especially if you're a wimp like me.
Are unable to jump of the patterned trousers train like me?

Yellow 50s style dress: c/o Traffic People
Dove blue jelly heels: Vivienne Westwood
I was very kindly gifted this beautiful retro dress when I attended the Traffic People press day before Christmas. If i'm honest this is dress couldn't be more perfect for me if it tried. It incorporates my favourite era, it's my favourite type of length, it has sleeves and it's in my favourite colour. Any dress that I can swish about in like a lady gets the thumbs up from me! I don't often wear yellow despite it being my favourite colour like I said but it just instantly makes me feel happy. It reminds me of warmer climates - sunshine isn't something we get often in England! This dress was absolutely brilliant to take away on holiday to Turkey last week.
Has anything from Traffic People caught your eye?
